Hello and Happy Friday! I have a mixed bag of favorites to share today.
What’s going on around here? We are slowly doing things to improve ourselves and make life better.
We are still sticking close to the house and work. Work provides me with plenty of “risky” contacts with people and since the number of virus cases here still hasn’t really dropped significantly, we are still limiting our outings and contact with others. We ventured out to the wildlife refuge last weekend. We saw alligators, birds, and three deer. I love the quiet of the woods and the country compared to all the noise of our neighborhood.
We have had four trees removed from our yard during the last couple of weeks and will soon have the backyard regraded, leveled and work done to drain all the water that stands constantly when it rains. We are hoping to limit water and tree damage during future storms. Maybe one day we will have a nice backyard to relax in.
Until then, life goes on and I’m here to share some links and hacks to make your life better.

Apple cider vinegar can be used for a healthy detox. We like to make a hot drink with it any time we begin to feel a little sickly with a cold or stomach bug. It can also be used to clean many items in your house. Check out 20 Ways to Clean Your House with Apple Cider Vinegar.
We recently tried out these Oven Baked Bacon Wrapped Chicken Tenders (say that ten time fast!) Yum! Anything is good wrapped in bacon, right? Dip them in this Vidalia Onion Vinagrette that we discovered at Sam’s Club. Even more yummy!
Tshirt dresses from Amazon were my best sellers last month and I totally get it. A tshirt dress is one of my favorite summer pieces. You loved and ordered this one and this one. Easy outfits make your life better.
My favorite kimono has been flying off the shelves too. It’s available in lots of colors/patterns but many are selling out. I wear it in a small. My kimonos just make me happy and happy feelings make life better too.
Don’t forget about the sale at Cents of Style on kimonos- 50% off with code KIMONO50 ( and shipping is free). And if that isn’t exciting enough, their entire collection of graphic tees and shirts just went on sale for $10 and $20 with code SAYIT.
Do you work out on a stability ball? Here’s a quick workout for a stability ball, and if you haven’t yet added one to your workout routine, here’s a quick introduction to the stability ball. These videos aren’t the best quality but great for beginners who may be intimidated by super fit work out models on other videos.
I have a stability ball and have used if off and on over the years. A stability ball creates a whole new dynamic to routine moves. It really does increase your balance and work your core. It’s important to maintain agility as we age.
A stability ball has been used a bit for some of the moves in the Faster Way to Fat Loss workouts. I’m finishing week 5 with just one more to go! I have loved the workouts because I have been challenged like never before.
If you want to learn the secret to the right combination of diet and exercise for maximum benefits, you need to give the Faster Way to Fat Loss a try. And I say diet loosely- you will eat more than you ever have and get treats too. Another round starts June 22 and you can sign up here. Yes, it’s pricey- but you are SO WORTH IT. This is your life and health we’re talking about and you are worth it. I’m doing another round or VIP- I’m still trying to decide.
Have a great weekend. Linking up with
